Angelo Bortolin Prosecco Extra Dry 2010
The winery is situated in Guia, the most favorably suited area for the production of the famous spumante sparkling wine from Treviso. Wine has been produced here since 1968, when Angelo Bortolin, the son of a farmer, founded the company, immersed in the spectacular scenery of the hills of Valdobbiadene. Wholeheartedly appreciated from the very beginning, his wines were soon enriched by smart technological investments, and since 1983, through the upgrading of his facilities, Bortolin began to specialize in the production of spumante sparkling wines.
Since 1993, his three children (Cristina, Paola and Desiderio) have become members of the company one at a time, a generational transition that was completed in January 2010 with the appointment of Desiderio Bortolin as majority shareholder and with the company’s change from S.N.C (co-partnership) to S.A.S. (L.L.P.). Angelo, the founder, still takes part in the activities, but always discreetly, leaving all the decision-making power to his successors: a strategic move that enables the company to leverage the entrepreneurial spirit and ideas of a new business generation.
Desiderio, who bears the name of his paternal grandfather, is currently the driving force of Bortolin Angelo Spumanti. Always supported by his sisters and qualified technical consultants, he succeeded in promoting and marketing his product in countries that seemed unreachable. Award-winning in the most renowned national and international wine competitions of the Valdobbiadene DOCG, Angelo Bortolin winery was awarded the Grand Gold Medal at the 2011 edition of Vinitaly as best Charmat method spumante sparkling wine with its Extra Dry version.
The steepest hills with the best soils and exposition, Valdobbiadene (also called Conegliano Valdobbiadene) is the historic area covering 15 municipalities between the two villages of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Collectively it is recognized as the Prosecco Superiore DOCG. This very small area—only 7,000 hectares—of extreme terrain is in the heart of the larger Prosecco zone.
Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.
The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
